Starting off in Flickr?

Flickr Newb Question: I have a free Flickr account and have uploaded a dozen or so pics over the year or so that I've had it. Now I'd like to put all of my family photos (about 17GB worth) up on Flickr for 2 reasons

1) I like having an online/offsite backup and 2) I'd like to be able to access the photos via some of the cool options afforded by Flickr like the flash badge thingee and RSS feeds.
My question is how do I best upload AND ORGANIZE the photos? I have a (fairly) deep directory structure that organizes them on my home server. For example: Outdoors\Hikes\Geocaching\Atlanta has the photos we took on that trip. Is it best to just use tags? Would 'sets' or 'collections' help? Is there an uploadr (ha..get it??) tool that will assign tags/sets/collections/whatever based on my directory names?
Of course, I'm happy to pay to upgrade my account to Pro if I can find a good solution for this.
Thanks for any help y'all can offer.
